Please see email below from USA Volleyball in regards to Boys Bids
We know everyone is anxious to learn the more about the new Boys Region bid we are implementing in 2023, below are more details on the bid.
BJNC Overview – 2023 Growth
USA Volleyball will add 1 Regional division to BJNC with the American division.
The American Division for BJNC will be a Region only division with 24 teams for the 16s and 18s age groups only for 2023. Similar to the Girls, we will have a benchmark Regions must meet according to membership numbers to receive one of these bids. There will also be a similar reallocation process and order. The bid allocations will come out by the beginning of September or sooner.
**Note: we chose to only add 16s & 18s Region bids after evaluating the 2022 BJNC numbers and over-all 2022 membership numbers. We will continue to monitor the growth of other age groups (14s, 15s, 17s) and determine when a more ideal year will be to add the additional Region bids.
The Division order of strength will be as follows:
Open (14-18s) – Qualifier bid
USA (14-18s) – Qualifier bid
American (16 & 18s) – Region bid only
Club (12-18s) – non qualifying
In addition, USA Volleyball will be adding a 10th Boys Qualifier, the Mountain Classic from December 2-4, 2022. We will be evaluating the current distribution of bids for the Open and USA divisions for current Boys Qualifiers and we will communicate the new bid structure by early September as well.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
